SAN DIEGO Group - 6am @ Park n Ride:
We're leaving from the Sorrento Valley Park & Ride (in the Goodwill lot under the 5 and 56 interchange) at 6am SHARP! Get there early if you expect to find a ride. If you're late, you're on your own. Look for the bright yellow Toyota FJ Cruiser with Wonder Woman spare tire cover. That belongs to your host, Amy Codiamat.
We need all attendees to make an effort to consolidate into as few a cars as possible, and each car needs an Adventure Pass(see below).

Everyone going directly to the Trailhead:
Get here as early as you can and get started on the hike. Please don't wait around. There will be too many people to start at the same time.
Parking is extremely limited! Please carpool with your friends. EVERY car must have an Adventure Pass(see below)

Trailhead Address:
Camp Bonita Road, San Gabriel Mountains National Monument
Azusa, CA 91702
Trailhead Coordinates:

PARKING PERMIT (REQUIRED): If you plan to drive, you will need to purchase an Adventure Pass prior to the event. You cannot get one on the day of the hike. DayPass is $5, or a YearPass is $30.

There WILL be cold water flowing in the river, and requires that you cross it 5 to 7 times! If you do not feel comfortable doing so, please do not RSVP!

The trail to the Bridge to Nowhere is mostly gradual with rugged terrain and rock scrambling. Wading through water is unavoidable (at least in wet months), so pack appropriate footwear. Hiking boots, water shoes, and a towel is the best combination. The hike up the canyon has a minimum of four river crossings. Trekking in wet shoes is not ideal, and while it is tedious to change your footwear throughout the hike, your feet may thank you.

**Everyone is expected to conduct themselves in a responsible manner.
Littering, vandalism, and destruction of wildlife will not be tolerated!
